Moving the real pieces - over the board tournament

Last weekend I came out and played 3 games in a weekend tournament. Great to see some people still organizing these kind of events, as well as others showing up to play. Tension in rated slow time control tournaments is much higher than during online blitz games, but satisfaction from playing games without obvious blunders is also much higher. I did miss some nice tactics, but was overall happy with my result. Bindi Cheng, Lucas Davies and Pavel Trochtchanovitch tied for first with 4/5; I scored 2.5/3 and with 2 byes was tied for fourth place.
